German Shepherd Equipment
Herm Sprenger collars
Dog training equipment : For basic training we use a 6 foot leather lead and a choke chain or a pinch collar. We first start with a choke chain and if we get success that is the collar we will use. But if our dog has a high tolerance for corrections or we need a better correction, then we will use a pinch collar.
If your choke chain goes over your dogs head a little snug that's alright because most breed of dogs have a larger head than neck. Now to put the choke chain on right drop the chain through either ring and make the letter P of the alphabet. Now with you looking at the letter P slip it over your dogs head. With your dog on your left hand side if you pop up on the leash and release- the choke chain should also release the tension on the dogs neck. If you are using a pinch collar remember it does not go over your dogs head, you must unhook it at a link in the collar then go around your dogs neck and hook the collar back together. You can add or subtract links from a pinch collar to change sizes. A pinch collar should fit semi snug on your dog. If a pinch collar is fitted too loose it will not give an effective correction.
